Queen Anne’s Duke of Edinburgh’s Silver Participants take on Mother Nature

Thursday 23rd March 2017

Forty nine L5 and U5 took on Mother Nature during their four day Silver Practice Expedition. Strong winds, heavy rain and at times cold conditions could not stop the girls or dampen their spirits.

Higher and more exposed routes were swapped for flatter and more protected valleys, but the Brecon Beacons still proved a challenging test. Sam Sykes Ltd staff could not have been more pleased with the way the girls adapted and applied themselves. All of them have learned much about themselves and their friends.

They have learned and sharpened new skills or refreshed what they had learned at Bronze level – all are now ready to participate in the Silver Qualifying Expedition next term in the Yorkshire Dales. Mr Blunt would like to thank Mrs Eagle for the great support she provided the expedition and girls.

Mr Blunt added:

‘DofE Expeditions are supposed to be challenging, great fun and a test of physical fitness. Participants are required to be organised throughout, managing their kit, food and coping with the outdoor elements.  The Queen Anne’s girls were brilliant and have waxed lyrical at school this week about their achievements. I am really looking forward to witnessing their Qualifying Expedition next term in the Yorkshire Dales’.
